. and tonight it's etch-a-sketch anniversary day. one year ago mitt romney's communication director accidently gave the candidate a new nickname. it was on cnn during the g.o.p. primaries and they were answering a question from a non-qualified journalist who apparently snuck into the cnn studio without permission. >> is there a concern that the pressure from the santorum gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right that it would hurt him for moderate voters in the general election. >> well, i think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. everything changes. it's almost like an etch-a-sketch, you can kind of shake it up and we start all over again. >> to this day that i'm asked to sign etch-a-sketches. i wish i could say i caused mitt romney's defeat. but after the 47% video credit for mitt romney's failure goes to one person, mitt romney. the cost of looking good will no longer be exacted on welfare of animals in europe. cosmetic products including toiletries that are tested on animals have been banned by the e.u. since 2004 but now any cosmetic product that possesses an

romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
mitt romney of course a couple weeks ago said the longer primary process hurt him. but again, i think this is very much the establishment in washington, it's going to be interesting to see how this plays, going out into states. or maybe the center of gravity isn't necessarily with the rnc. >> good point. some of that divergence that we saw over the weekend clearly at cpac. another report is that america looks different. that the rnc is going to spend millions of dollars, $10 million to reach out to latino americans, asian voters and here's what steve latourette said. take a listen. >> if we ever want to be a national party, we have to look like america. today, we look like a bunch of white guys from below the mason/dixon line. >> so how do they change the reputation of a party of stuffy white men as has been said, as the report describes it when candidates when chosen are often white men? >> well, it's not just the candidates. it's the workers, it's the convention. you go to the republican national convention it looks entirely different than the democratic convention that looks truly
're communicating our message to voters. if we're not, the obama campaign did an incredible job defining mitt romney. if we were the party of the rich, that was basically six months of heavy advertising by the democrats. i think it was important to reposition ourselves. to talk to voters clearly about what we stand for. >> it sounds like what we're hearing, the mention is fine for the most part. no major problems with the message. it is how we are reaching voters and how we are delivering that mention. is that a fair assessment? >> i wouldn't say, there are things we can do to talk about our policies better. there are ways we can improve our message. he didn't talk so much about policies and i thought that's a clear point that needs to be made with regard to this rollout. there are a lot of tactical changes we need to make as a party and a movement to talk to people in a more clear way. >> save immigration. we'll talk about that. one of the major recommendations from the report has to do with the primary process. the rnc wants to move toward a shorter primary season. fewer debates in the last cycle.
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
the terrorists acting out. romney didn't feel that situation that well with his press conference he called it at the wrong time about the guy that runs the entire foreign policy apparatus in the united states. it really does seem he used to say that a reporter is someone else that will sell his soul for a good story but it took turns out when the story might make barack obama look bad or make his presidency looks like a failure they are going to miss stories by definition simply for the inability to see the failure to be interested .... on the editorial page recovered the way that i wanted to be covered if i have anyone to blame but myself. we are part of who we are as the washington examiner but we also there is no reason that we should be the only ones to be ill-defined obvious trends in the labor statistics that we were practically the ones to write about people seem unaware of of the economy. 25 to
at the ryan plan in a little more detail. it's quite similar to what he and romney proposed. how is this different? some are calling it just the same old plan. >> well, again, i'm not sure that's true. i think the majority of americans think that the budget does need to balance at some point. the federal debt is too high. although we can disagree on some details, i think overall americans can agree, we need a budget. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hs
the group called america rising mitt romney's former campaign manager matt rose. carl cameron is live for us in washington. this will be a superpac that will just do research? >> reporter: opposition research as it's called and rapid response. both sides do it. all political parties do it in one way or the other. usually the research of ones a poepb event and pumping it out to the public is done by the state or political parties or individuals themselves. they will be an independent superpac and focus ongoing after democrats to help the republicans on the right go against the liberals on the left this. all came together literally in the same week that the republican national commit lee last week announced its own season autopsy, and urged the formation of a quote, an allied group dedicated solely to research to establish a private archive and public website that does nothing but post inappropriate democratic utterances and information on democrats. in 2012 a couple of democratic superpacs did real damage to mitt romney's reputation and his campaign. republicans have had a couple of superpacs
they go out and talk to people, they are treated so badly. like romney went to philadelphia and got heckleed. when you look at the twitter feed, how badly was he? you have professors that are incompetent and that is the only thing you can do. this goes back to what dennis prager said, the right thinks the left is wrong, but the left thinks the right is evil. that excuses the dehumanizing behavior. the behavior that allows you to denigrate a surgeon. by the way, why are all surgeons conservatives? what is it about that? do they understand, you know, logic -- >> dana: logic and fact. >> greg: rapid paul, ophthalmologist, not a surgeon. ophthalmologists performs surgery. >> dana: they could. >> greg: case closed. >> eric: move to future of the g.o.p. >> kimberly: let's do it. >> dana: so bright you have to wear shades. >> eric: me and a lot of conservatives scratching our head as they talk about rebanding the party, because it's perceived as "stufffy old men" and needs to change its ways. we had thoughts on the g.o.p. rush limbaugh. listen. >> the republicans are totally bamboozled and
in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they were used. if it were used, it would be a game-changer. but israel needs the u.s. for iran and t
barack obama was the pro-growth optimist and that mitt romney was the pessimist and kemp always wand that high ground which reagan always had. the point i want to underscore that you just said and then i'll bring the others in, i knew jack, jack was such a dear friend. jack talked constantly about reaching out to minorities, empowerment zones, school choice for example, home ownership. it was jack kemp who worked with charlie rangel to create empowerment zones here in new york and elsewhere and to cut or abolish the capital gains tax to entrepreneurs. it's one of the days to this day i'm still charles errol rangel. the republican party has to get that for blacks, for minorities, for asians, prosperity for everybody of. >> instead of defending multi-millionaires, he went out to those who were poor, minorities and said i want you to be millionaires. >> it wasn't just his energy, it wasn't just his entrepreneurship, it was his message. can you almost say that message of capitalism and prosperity for everybody but especially for those that have not, jimmy. jack kemp spoke to those who ha
the litmus test is elections. paul ryan was on the national ticket. he basically argued as did mitt romney, on the very well thing that the house republicans just passed. and the voters cast farvotes for more votes for u.s. senate candidate who is were democrats and far more votes for democratic candidates for the house of representatives. so that's the way we resolve these differences in our country, by elections. it was not really a very close call? >> the fiscal issue has not been resolved i. of course, it hasn't been resolved. hold on, mercedes, let's acknowledge what has happened, the deficits have dropped now for 3 straight years at a rate lower -- faster pace than we have seen since the end of world war ii. nobody wants to acknowledge that. but they are coming down because we did have to engage in emergency spenning when the chitanked and we are coming out of that. we have to have balance -- that's good. but what is really good is job creation and a strong economy. we are seeing the effects of austerity. they would trade our economy for theirs in a success. in realtime, as consequen
's development, though, is fascinating. >> it is. i wonder if it played a role in his -- in mitt romney's campaign. i think it might have. >>> next week, the supreme court will consider a challenge to laws that outlaw same-sex marriage. >> actually, i don't think it did. i don't think the romney team wanted to win ohio. >> the woman running -- >> if they'd selected rob portman, they'd win ohio. who wants to win ohio? >> just 1 of 50. >> too constructive. >> ran this selection process, not only said it didn't play a role, but she herself has come out in support of gay marriage. >> who? >> beth myers who ran the selection process. >> but she didn't make the decisions, ran the process. >> she was influential. >> all right. >>> coming up on "morning joe." i'm just telling you -- >> what are you telling us? >> shortsightedness ran that campaign and that would have been it. >> and where can i meet them? >> he's over there with samsung. the end of power players, how the little guys are making waves on the global stage. so let's break down this play. charles? uh, charles couldn't make it. his s
not understand what people think we have such a contentious relationship. on the rear of a car, a mitt romney bumper sticker. guest: it is no secret that he had a tense relationship with president obama. even though they will deny it, it was clear that he was close to mitt romney and so said that he supported mitt romney. he definitely did not do much to support obama in this re- election cycle. however these three short days in the middle east have done a lot to bridge these gaps. we saw benjamin netanyahu willing to be persuaded by president obama. i think we saw the israeli public, even though it may have started out with a deep mistrust towards obama, it ended this week with a lot of affection. maybe it did manage to bridge some of these gaps. ,ost: after a two state evening he arrived on wednesday, meeting with the israeli prime minister. thursday he traveled to the west bank and met with the palestinian authority president. friday, meeting with the king of playing tourist yesterday and returning to washington at 8:00 last evening. the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, asked ab
to address its problems of getting its message across. this new thinking started after mitt romney's loss to president obama in the november election. so what is the grand plan? mark preston joining us. mark, do you know? they say they don't want to have an image of stuffy old men, is that it? >> that is it. let the recalibration begin, suzanne. you know, you and i have heard this time and time again after every presidential election you hear the losing political party talk about how they need to change their message. but reince priebus, who is the chairman of the republican national committee, suzanne, says that he has really got to recalibrate what they're doing. he spent the last several months right now putting together a proposal that would not only overhaul the mechanics of how republicans pick their presidential nominee, but would also overhaul the message. he's talking about spending $10 million and dedicating that money to put people on the ground, paid workers in the communities such as african-american communities, hispanic communities, to try to recruit voters. they got clobbe
in the republican party. governor romney considered him as his running mate, and i believe theeaction to rob portman habeenxtraordina. the ha bee some voices who condemned him and condemned his decision but you hear many prominent republicans being extraordinarily muted including the cpac and what they're saying in reaction to what he's done. they don't agree with him -- >> rose: it would have been different four years ago. >> when dick chainy did it -- >> rose: portman cited cheney and saying go with your conscious. >> look i can't emphasize enough. for insiders it is hardfor any reblican insider who knows ron portman to say a negative thing about him because he's so extraordinarily well liked and beyond reproach on his conserve fifth credentials on a range of issues. when the history of this is written and when you did an oral history we are moving inexorably to broader accent tons of gay marriage in this country. in the republican party rob portman's decision is part of what raises the consciousness of a lot of republicans who say because many of them fit this category. privately i can accept t
of center, prime minister netanyahu right of center, no question netanyahu favored romney in the presidential election. i talked to a top u.s. official the other day who put it this way, he said "they're stuck with each other." both of these guys just won elections. the president starting his second term. prime minister netanyahu put together his coalition government. iran is a huge policy issue, trying to restart the peace process is a huge issue, if they have a better personal relationship they can get things done. you saw first thing this morning the prime minister tries to crack a joke, he says if you can ditch your security detail, i have a fake mustache and we'll go out and have a few drinks in the bar. it's clear they're trying to at least for the public con sujs to show they're going to work together better on the personal side. >> good to see you, john king there, traveling with the president. >>> the israeli embassy released a video for president obama's trip. we want everybody to take a look at this. ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ traveled down the road an
in 2012, governor romney, gop nominee, he couldn't use obamacare as issue. as people find out more and more, look what is happening to the tax on medical devices. senate overwhelmingly to repeal it, including 33 democrat senators voted for it. as popular opinion starts to weigh in you will see uprising. administration will be very tempted to use european solutions. think that will set them up for real smackdown in 2014. david: steve forbes portfolio, are you 100% stocks now. >> retirement fund, always invested. ride the storm. if you ride the market you will get whipsawed. i ride the wave. david: good advice. steve, see you tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. on fox news channel. >> terrific. david: shibani. shibani: prices for u.s. farmland have been paradise not only for farmers but investors with prices doubling since 2009. the rapid rise has some wondering if the next bubble to burst isn't on wall street but in fact in the heartland of america? jeff flock will join to us have that story. david: also it is he portfolio indicator. a top strategy tells us why ditching the east and heading sou
the president was elected. there's no doubt that netanyahu preferred romney over obama in the last election. but the fact of the matter is, the president understands as well as netanyahu that the two of them are facing what essentially is israel's greatest peril in the next year, and that is iran's potential nuclear weaponization. and both countries are tied at the hip inso far as what happens to iran. if iran decides to proceed, well, both israel and the united states might find themselves in a conflict against iran. and so there's got to be a better relationship between these two men. not only with respect to iran, but also with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that the president does not have his back and they would have to act unilaterally without due american consultation with israelis. >> and we know, michael, that the president is going to be going to ramallah to be talk
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
and talking about a common sense caucus. and we can talk about divisions and point my finger and mitt romney said 47% of the american people. >> i rejected by the way. >> i'm sure you did and so did the american people. >> megyn: that came late. the outreach to the republicans came late in the term, but he's speaking about something more when he's talking about stoking the divisions. but speak to mark's point about undermining the financial stability and his point about the stock market a rebounding and positive economic indicators. if husband goal is to destroy the country, mark-- >> i don't know if mark wants to make that claim today when he sees the stock market react to what's happening in cyprus, and all of a sudden, the stock market and wall street is indicative of prosperous growth on main street, i would definitely take -- we have the highest labor force-- the lowest, rather, labor force participation since the 1980's, mark, you know that. the jobless rate is decreasing because people are leaving the work force. economic growth the rising tide that lifts all boats in our country .1%
ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has an uphill battle on this charm offensive going forward. martha, a recent poll done here in israel only 10% of israelis had a favorable or likeness toward president obama. martha: hmmm. that is a pretty rough number for him there, leland. what is he doing to sort of try to win over the people in israel during this t
the battle last year. he certainly defeated governor romney, we have not seen his approval ratings, the pupil just came out, his approval ratings a down to where bushes were in 2004. they have dropped dramatically since the election, since december. and part of that is because he has been playing tax increases. he tries to divide people and then raises taxes. he's not threatening to raise taxes on everyone. many of the taxes to pay for obamacare had all americans. it's not targeted just a few people. politicians play trickle-down taxation. this said it will tax the rich and it trickles down to tax everybody. americans have begun to figure that out. cheryl: corporate tax rate. paul ryan 1725%. you think will happen? >> eventually will because it has to because the european average is 25%. or a 35%. obama has raised taxes on subchapter s companies that pay smaller firms and some bigger ones that. the individual rate up to 44%. europe said 25. we're 35 and 44. this is one of the reasons we're not as competitive. as a self-inflicted wound. cheryl: one of the big issues that we will talk about lat
of things. three people are starting it. first of all, mitt romney's former campaign manager, matt rhodes. he stays out of the lime light most often but he's going to run this and he's the first ever campaign manager for a national presidential candidate who was, in fact, the head of r.n.c. opposition research. he made a living looking into the opposition's records. he's joined us with joe pounder, another whiz with both the opposition research and rapid response end of all of this and he, too, was involved in that at the r.n.c. and tim miller who si a spokesman at the r.n.c. and worked for the john huntsman campaign in 2012. acquitted himself as a clear communicator with the new technology. listen to their goal z. we're going to have dedicated trackers to all the democratic candidates up in big races in 2014 and all of the potential democrat rising stars down the line for 2016 races or the future and so we did not have last cycle was one organization that sole purpose was to take that video, to monitor the interviews they're doing and making sure what they're saying back home isn't diffe

in the span of eight years from 44%, that's what george bush received, to just 27% for mitt romney. alex, why do you think that's happened, can the party reverse it? >> i think we lost our way. we for got i think that this country at some point everybody goes back and their family came here from somewhere. most americans. and we forgot that the new blood re-energizes this country. and i think part of that was the contribution that, well, we didn't have secure borders and at a time when the economy is cratering, all of a sudden it became a very dark process, we're eating our own tail. more jobs for immigrants may have meant less jobs for someone else. and the way you lead yourself out of that is, no, no, everyone has something to con tribute. let's get an immigration process that brings people who want to come here, who want to become americans, who want to contribute to this country not take from this country. and that's always been the republican message. fortunately, they allowed a few republican media consultants to stay. i'm happy about that. but our problems are bigger than just hispanic

will just say politically i thought that was the greatest offer that governor romney had. he was a very good manager. in my opinion, we have had enough speech makers, we have enough war presidents, we have had enough grand and glorious stuff, we need somebody to run this government. like the presiding officer ran the state of virginia. and it takes hard work and you have to stay on top of it, and it would have been great for us to have had real top management so that every cabinet person when they are hired is -- understands they have a duty to produce more for less for the american people. and every sub cabinet and sub cabinet and sub cabinet person and every department head gets the message from top leadership on down, you're expected, like larry thompson and i did, to share a hotel room, if need be, to save your -- to save your debt, save the -- running up debt in the united states government. and this budget doesn't do it. i think we quoted earlier what "the washington post" said, march 15. in short, this budget document gives voters no reason to believe that democrats have a viable plan

's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten
on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget.
